Original Report

In the night of October 4, 2018, the two men were caught by one Croatian officer in uniform, when they were hidden in a truck near the Croatian-Slovenian border.

The officer took them out of the truck and drove them to a police station, supposedly a Croatian one. There, the officers didn’t ask for their fingerprints but registered their mobile phones.

Afterwards, the two of them were driven with a bus to an area near Sid (SRB), together with 18 other people on the move.
